My unbiased reviews of different P2P platforms and other financial services I enjoy using.

After a lot of thinking and research over the past few weeks and the holidays, as well as everything that happened since December with Kuetzal, I made a decision. I’m slowly withdrawing my money from Envestio, Monethera and Wisefund.

I want to explain my thought process, what I found out during my research of the three P2P platforms, exactly how I’m going to proceed on each of them and how we got here in the first place.

You might still come to different conclusions in the end. Of course, a lot of this is based on my own opinion and risk tolerance. Nonetheless, you’ll find everything that made me reconsider in this post.

I still can’t believe what happened over the past few weeks with the crowdlending platform Kuetzal. No matter whether or not you’re an investor on this P2P platform, I think you should know about it.

I never invested on the platform myself, but I know from comments and e-mails that some of you did.

Please forgive me if this information reaches you a couple of weeks after it was first discovered, I took some time off during the holidays.

Alright, let’s take a look at everything we know so far.

Before getting into it, I would like to mention that my Lendermarket review is unbiased and only based on my own experience investing on the P2P platform as well as my personal opinion.

As usual, I’m going to be fully transparent about the amount I invested, my returns so far and my account balance on Lendermarket.

Today’s review will be slightly different, as it also includes some questions I asked Lendermarket over the past few weeks. So whenever you see quotes throughout the review, that’s Omayra Roig, the project manager of business developments at Lendermarket, answering my question.

I hope you’ll find the answers useful as well!

Mintos recently launched Invest & Access as a new, simplified way to invest on the platform and to cash out more easily. I can’t help but think that they were at least partly inspired by Bondora Go & Grow, which I’ve been using since September of last year.

I’m going to compare the two peer to peer platforms and test out which one is better for short-term investments in P2P lending.

To find out, I invested 1.000€ on both Mintos Invest & Access and Bondora Go & Grow on June 12th. Over the coming weeks and months, I’ll review which one offers the better experience, higher returns and how much money we can withdraw at different points in time.

Update (December 15th): I added my 6-Month Investment-Update!
